When you’ve moved into a new home, it seems only right to host a housewarming once you have officially settled. This gives your friends and family a chance to check out your new dwelling and allows you to show off all the hard work you’ve put into the home. However, if this is your first opportunity to host a gathering or event it can be a tad overwhelming even for the most experienced host. So, to make the process a little easier we have gathered 4 ways to ensure you host a great housewarming party below:
- Ensure Guests Comfort: The number one key to any party is ensuring that all guests are comfortable within your home. From lighting the Valor Fireplace to ensure warmth – to hosting with snacks and a well-stocked bar, it’s important to make sure every guest is having a great time. It’s also important to make sure you have enough space within the home for guests to be seated if they choose to, so they don’t have to feel like they need to be on their feet for the whole evening.
- Prepare The Whole House: This is an extra important tip when it comes to hosting a housewarming as guests will most likely want to see the home in all of its glory. So, make sure to go through every room and prepare it accordingly so that it’s ready to show off to any guest wanting to see it! This includes bathrooms, bedrooms and common spaces as you’ll most likely be giving a tour and ideally don’t want to have to skip any rooms due to them not being ready!
- Accept Help: Are your guests offering to bring food or drinks to the party? This is a great time to accept the help and say Yes! Not only will this help take some of the pressure off of you as the host, you’ll also get a great mix of food that will cater to everyone. Guests may also choose to bring their drinks of choice which is a great idea as they may desire something outside of the normal party bar menu!
- Enjoy The Social Aspect: Last but not least, it’s important to remember that as the host you need to enjoy the party as well. So, take the time to mingle with your guests and enjoy the company of everyone in attendance. Not only does this make you look like a great host, it allows you to enjoy all the hard work you’ve put into the party and enjoy the evening.
